Chia: Super-Food Benefits For Those On the Go
No one sets out to be fat. We think we eat healthy. But truth be told, the average American diet is less than nutritious .
Hey, it’s not your fault. At least, not totally. The pressures of life, be they careers, children, finances and relationships take a bite out of your time and your energy. Fast food beckons in times like these, and it’s a heck-of-a-lot easier to grab a burger with fries than it is to plan a nourishing meal with the nutrition needed for optimum health.
Of course, it should come as no surprise that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates that 64% of adult males and 72% of adult women in the United States are either over-weight or obese. Heart disease, brought on by excessive weight, is now the leading cause of death in the United States. Combine that with diabetes and cardiovascular disease and, well, fat sucks.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get the nutrition you need quickly, and with the convenience required for your busy lifestyle?
Well, we have good news for you. Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed has got ya covered. With 27+ vitamins and minerals and enough protein and fiber to sustain your body’s nutritional needs, it’s the ultimate super-food for those on the go.
Heard of chia? You’ve certainly heard the label “super-food” used a few times. Salmon, blueberries…ring a bell? Add chia to that list. More fiber than flax-seed, more calcium than milk. A hundred per cent more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon and double the antioxidants found in blueberries.
Yes, we’re talking “super-food” folks. The kind that takes health to whole new levels, with benefits that include:
- more energy
- less food cravings
- excess weight loss
- improved digestion
- increased lean muscle mass
- improved sleep
- healthier skin
All that in the form of a seed? Yup, it’s true. The Aztecs cultivated chia hundreds of years ago to nourish their warriors and sustain their messengers. And it’s still popular in Mexico and Guatemala, where it’s prized for its nutritional content. With protein, fiber, fatty acids, amino acids and essential vitamins, it’s not hard to see why.
And more good news. Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed is highly adaptable to suit your needs. You can bake it, toss it, add it to your sandwich at lunch. Or you can add it to a smoothie for a serious power boost. The cost to your waistline? A whole 41.25 calories per tablespoon.
More numbers to ponder: Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed is 16% protein, 31% fat and 44% carbohydrate, of which 38% is soluble and insoluble fiber. That will keep you feeling full and reduce the chance you’ll raid the cookie jar when you’re not hungry.
The USDA recommends that healthy Americans consume 20-35 grams of fiber per day, yet the average adult gets only ten to fifteen daily grams on a regular basis. More fiber can keep you lean, reduce constipation and digestion problems and lower high cholesterol.
You might also find that Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed makes you more pleasing to the eye, with better skin and increased lean muscle mass. In fact, you may find it more tempting to doff your clothes in bathing suit season.
Your body is a temple. So treat it like one. Try Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed and enjoy super-food benefits with your busy lifestyle!
